Nicotinamide adenine dinuleotide (NAD(+)) plays critical roles in multiple biological functions. Previous studies have indicated that NAD(+) treatment decreases oxidative stress-induced death of primary neurons and astrocytes. Intranasal administration of NAD(+) also reduces brain damage in a rat model of transient focal brain ischemia. However, th...

Hi, do you have the idea to answer this question?
"When monkeys with Kluver-Bucy syndrome pick up lighted matches and snakes, we do not know whether they are displaying an emotional deficit or an inability to identify the object. What kind of research method might help answer the question?"
Thank you
Question
Dear all, does anybody has the idea about the major contributor to brain ischemic injury in different phases? i.e. In ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) model, the energy depletion values much in the ischemia phase, however, when the reperfusion start, oxidative stress begins to harm the brain cells. How about the fluctuation of immflammation along these two phases, then?
And, how about other brain ischemia models, like HIE, pMCAO, and etc. Thank you.
